A Massachusetts man filed a class-action lawsuit against Major League Baseball, the Houston Astros and the Boston Red Sox over the teams’ stealing of signals between pitchers and catchers of opposing teams.
The suit filed Thursday in Manhattan Federal Court says the teams’ cheating cost fans money by hurting their fantasy baseball picks made through DraftKings — in which Major League Baseball is an investor.
The lead plaintiff in the case is identified in the suit as Kristopher Olson, a Massachusetts resident who “like millions of other” DraftKings customers was victimized by the “wrongful conduct” of Major League baseball and its “corrupt member teams.”
Major League Baseball and its teams, including the Astros and Red Sox, “encouraged their fans to take a financial stake in DraftKings’ fantasy baseball wagering competitions,” the lawsuit says.
“What MLB’s fans did not know was that MLB’s and its member teams’ commitment to ensuring the honesty and integrity of the game of baseball had also changed,” says the suit.
